As of today, 10\18\10, in Vessel Engineering and Design, we are constructing the NY Sloop. Different groups will be creating loftings of the profile view and the section views of the NY Sloop. Different tools being used to create these loftings are batten, a divider, a T square, and a yard stick. We will be using measurements from the NY sloop blueprints to construct a model twice the size of the original. We are working on our measuring skills and our problem solving skills.
